re: States consider moving beyond medical marijuana


Okay? I know people like that who don't smoke. Weed isn't the reason for that.

I'm not sure the Feds would want the bad pub.

My cousin says they don't really frick with CO much because they have a very good regulation system. People follow the rules. They bust Cali all the time because a lot of people are able to abuse the system.

So you don't think that DUI incidents and fatalities will go up in the areas they legalize it in? Those are the facts I care about. I don't suppose anyone who wants it legalized will care about that though.

Well seeing as how there are zero marijuana related fatalities yearly, it can only go up?

DUI incidents would go up a bit, but would be much much lower than alcohol related incidents.

Driving high isn't hard, most people do it, doesn't really affect you IMO. Myself, I turn on some good tunes, and zone out on the road, am extra paranoid for popo and drive exactly the speed limit and perfectly between the lines.

I guess some people could be stupid with it idk, it mellows you out and makes you paranoid, at least for most people.

Alcohol on the other hand makes you angry, wild, and you can't see the road properly with blurry vision etc. Completely different circumstances IMO.

It didn't go up when medical marijuana legislation was passed.

Driving while stoned is not very difficult. It's a million times more dangerous to drive while on a phone.

Link?

I've never felt paranoid and most smokers I know don't feel that way. The people I know that do feel that way don't enjoy smoking because of that reason.

I'm cautious and very aware on the road while high but that doesn't = paranoia.

When driving high? Might just be me and some friends I know then. Or the car you drive, mine attracts cops which adds to it for me.

Yeah, probably more accurate.

Someone had a link for Oregon fatalities since medical marijuana was passed in 1998 in the comment section of a newspaper article but I can't seem to find it. In the past 14 years fatalities have gone down. I'm going to bed otherwise I'd research it myself.

re: States consider moving beyond medical marijuana


I've driven impaired bunches. The first time I got stoned I drove home, and all time slowed down. I was probably only going 30mph the whole way but the 30 minute drive, seemed like it took 2 hours. You drive the speed limit, take your time, and focus on the road.

Drinking on the other hand, is a penultimum of anger, rage, and hate. You progressively get aggressive until your adrenaline wears off and you black smooth out into a ditch or a neighborhood. You know you need to slow down, pull over, or do anything but keep driving. However, you can't you go faster, and faster, and wilder, and turn the lights off to give yourself a challenge, then you drive in the wrong lane for a mile, then you start slipping asleep, and you can't see shit, and you don't pull off and sleep til daylight... you crash.

at least that's my experience.

When driving high


Yep, I love to drive high. It passes the time very quickly. I set the cruise for 5 over (except when smoking I'll do the limit until I've aired out the car) and I just follow the rules of the road in terms of using signals, not riding someone's arse and getting over when a cop has someone pulled over, not texting and I use an earpiece for phone calls.

I'm never the car that's noticed and life is just easier that way.

Nowhere in that link does it say most people get paranoid. I never said people don't feel that way but the people I know that do aren't smokers because paranoia happens to them and they don't like it.

So driving while stoned is okay, as long as it's you, and you know you'll be real careful.... but driving drunk isn't okay because while it alos impairs you, it's dangerous? Sounds kind of delusional to me. But hey, as long as you guys are real careful when you drive high, it's cool.

Well I was only referencing when driving, not in general. Why the hell would one get paranoid in their home smoking? Or a friends, etc.

I drive the same way, minus the 5 over, whether I'm high or not. I don't like having to have ANY interaction with the police for any reason. I haven't had a ticket in almost 6 years and life is just simpler not dealing with them.

You're not a smoker and not in my shoes. I never feel impaired when high to be perfectly honest and feel I'm the best driver on the road. I can't count how many accidents I've avoided due to my defensive driving skills. Someone who tokes every now and then can be but I'm a regular. I've had one accident in my life and I was straight sober when it happened.

Eta....as someone who has driven drunk and high, being high isn't even close to driving drunk. FWIW

I don't know but it happens. My ex wife hated it and the only time she smoked was in the privacy of our residence. She'd only do it cause I asked but shed only do it 2-3 times a year. It's isn't for some people.
